WD Green $115 for 2TB, good price? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Hah several months before the floods I sold a brand new 2 TB WD Green that I got for free (long story) for $60.. could've made double now if I still had it! It's things like this that keep me away from day trading in the stock market tongue.gif

So um, everything just froze up while transferring to the new drive. Had to force reboot everything. Now windows isn't detecting the drive.

BIOS doesn't even detect it now.

Leave your computer off for 5-10 mins. (Unplugged from the wall.) Then turn it back on.

If the drive comes back, then... check the drive for errors with a SMART tester?

The extended SMART test is the one you want to run.

I ran the long test in seatools, it failed not even 1/3rd into the test, test was going about 40mins before it failed.

Or should I do the SMART test on it?

Looks like you may have gotten a bad one.

Is this the WD Green that isn't working for you? If so, RMA it.

They're the same thing. Both Seatools and WD DLG can run extended ("long") SMART tests.

If it failed, you received a dud. Time to RMA.
